Not sure if this came out at the combine....but should push these guys lower if we do trade down and happen to like one of them. Personally I think houston is too risky, would rather stay put and get a proven football player, who can play coverage/rush like Ayers.
FOX Sports' Jay Glazer and Alex Marvez report that Georgia DE/LB Justin Houston failed his drug test at February's Scouting Combine.
Iowa DL Christian Ballard also failed. Ballard already faced question marks about minimal production for his talent, while Houston is regarded as inconsistent on tape. The failed tests will likely keep both out of the first round, although Houston's elite explosiveness and upside should keep him safely in round two. Ballard may be an end-of-the-second-day pick at this point.
